The Petrified Forest

I thought this was an ehhhhhh one. A blahhhhh one. A so-obviously-was-originally-a-play-in-a-bad-way one.

The Petrified Forest (1936) starring Bette Davis, Humphrey Bogart & Leslie Howard. Leslie's Howard's character is insufferable. I like unlikable characters, but this is just a whole different issue. He's just annoying. Absurd. Following a completely unbelievable character arc (the writer's fault, but part of it is Leslie Howard himself). Bette Davis is a delight as always though. & hey Humphrey - welcome to the movies.
